What People are Saying About Us


“We had the most magical destination wedding at VR’s Lake Resort in Okawa Bay. Not only were we blessed with the most stunning day but the scenery was out of this world, the staff were accommodating and the food was incredible! With the help of Rolando and his team we did not have to worry about setting up the reception as they arranged everything, including the careful placement of centerpieces and decorations. Our family & friends are still convinced that it was the best wedding yet!”
